As part of the Westfield Chermside AUD$355 million redevelopment, Fabritecture was contracted for the fabrication and construction of a large scale custom aluminium retail structure, and subsequently, a porte cochère entry structure.
The aluminium structure is called the ‘Urchin’ as the distinctive shape resembles the round, jagged edges of a sea urchin. The Urchin is our first large architectural structure that does not include any fabric.
